The Battle of Appomattox Court House took place in the Village of Appomattox Court House, so named because that's where the courthouse -- and Wilmer McLean's house -- originally was. It is now in the Town of Appomattox, which is, yes, located in the County of Appomattox.idearat wrote: ↑Sat Dec 12, 2020 3:22 pmThere's the County of Appomattox, and the surrender was within that county, satisfying the "where". If not in a separate incorporated area within the county, the designation would be appropriate. (City or Village of... would have been incorrect) The structure where it took place was the McClean house, so that would have been correct. Appomattox Court House would really have been not correct. The battle there was named for it, but the surrender did not take place in it.
The clue asked for "this Virginia village", so "Appomattox" on its own is incorrect.
